Is Invisalign suitable for everyone?

More than 9 million people worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. But is Invisalign suitable for everyone?

Misaligned teeth can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Invisalign clear aligners are the modern alternatives to fixed metal braces, which can be cumbersome and unsubtle.

Invisalign clear aligners are thin plastic trays that gently and gradually move your teeth to their desired location, making them straighter and better aligned. A bespoke Invisalign treatment is created for each patient.

 

Process

Your Invisalign treatment begins with a consultation with one of our expert dentists.

We will assess your teeth using advanced 3D scanning technology. The scan will help to create a custom treatment plan specifically for you. You will also be able to see a virtual representation of your future smile.

You will then receive your first set of aligners to be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every ten to fourteen days. Each set of aligners will gently and gradually straighten your teeth.

Once your teeth have shifted into their correct position, you will be fitted with a set of clear retainers to give you a long-lasting smile.

 

Benefits

As they are custom-made, Invisalign clear aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place.

Invisalign aligners are removable, giving you the flexibility to eat and drink as you like, simply by removing the aligners.

Invisalign also allows you to view a virtual demonstration of your new smile and treatment plan before you begin your treatment, so that you can make sure you’re happy with the expected results even before your treatment is complete.

 

Who should use Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners are for both adults and teens who are looking for a virtually invisible solution to a better looking smile.

Invisalign can be used to treat most misalignments cases. They are usually used to treat mild and moderate misalignment or gapping issues, but they can also be used to correct significantly misaligned teeth.

The best way to tell if Invisalign is suitable for you is to speak to a dental professional. Our dentists will be able to assess your teeth and advise whether using Invisalign is the right approach.
